Nealey: How beatiful this is you did a wonderful rework of Cezanne. Its interesting how famous they are and according to todays instructors if we placed our still life's this way we would really be critiqued about it. you really captured this well. I especially like the Pitcher....

C & C Always Welcome
Jen C & C's always welcome
Nealey, your Cezanne has a great freshness to it, and it looks very Cezanne like. Ready to hang.
Mike, your rooster is great with its texture. This is the best I've seen from you so keep it up!

Mike, I love your rooster painting. You have such a light, beautiful touch. It is such a handsome bird, so it was so great to see that you tackled it.
Nealey, this is such a wonderful take on Cezanne. It is fascinating to see how accurate your mimicry was even though you used a different medium. Beautifully done.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
fast and loose, very lively
Marsha & Jen & Kim & Alex & Sarah ~ Thank you ladies! Copying the Cezanne was a great exercise. It's good to be disconcerted occasionally - I may try that again!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Mike your rooster sketch is great. The looseness is what makes it. Good job.
C and C always welcomed
Nealy your Cezanne is fantastic. You have the colors and composition down pat. I went to the Arkansas Art Center In Little Rock today. They had a Cezanne hanging there and it was terrible. I have seen much better work from this A D group. Very well done.
Hello all, I apologize for having only a small offering. This is a 4" x 5" WC pencil pear on 140 pound cold pressed paper in the manner (hopefully) of Cezanne.
Geri ~ Nice to see you on here again. It must be a busy month for everyone! Thank you for your praise of my Cezanne copy. It was certainly an exercise in going against MY grain!! That technique of outlining everything in black made me feel like I was doing a coloring book!
Alex! Excellent Cezanne pear WC. I think you got in more of the colors from the original painting. I was going to crop the photo & just paint the left side to the center. It would have made it more pleasing to me! Have you begun your WC class yet? Inquiring minds want to know......and see.
Thank you Marsha!!! And thank you everyone!! I started going to school full time this year, so haven't been able to contribute. Did this in between classes.
Criticism is always welcome. I am trying to learn everything and welcome the knowledge of all!
Celebration.......I have used the 'photo loosely and added the badgers..... not everyone agrees that the badgers are TB carriers and they (badgers!)are being culled in some areas of the UK.
I am pleased that we still have them here in the local woods. So..Celebration for me...
Hello Alex...nice and bold...have you started your art class yet?
Alex, I plum missed your pear. Very very nice with some rich color in it, try it again in reg water color or try a glaze over it again. If you want it floating that's ok, but have you considered grounding it with a cast shadow? I like the Cezanne method very striking...
Sarah, I love the pathway filled with light and badgers.... I love badgers and ant eaters. your depiction is really nice. We are having an outbreak of TB right here in Las Vegas. A few have already passed away because of it.
Geri: I see you are eyeing the posts again, great to see you peeking in....
